From Krug, the world’s most glittering name in Champagne, the Grande Cuvée is amazingly complex wine blended from up to 200 cuvées and 15 to 20 vintages. It’s the stylish signature of the house, and possibly the most important Champagne from Krug.
"Complexity from the very outset with praline, honey, grilled hazelnut and nougat aromas"
James Suckling 94 Points
Champagne Krug was founded in 1843 by Johann Joseph Krug, a maverick who turned his back on a comfortable position in an established Champagne house to strike out on his own – thus founding what was to become one of Champagne’s most revered names. Winemaking at Krug is very traditional, with fermentation taking place in small oak barrels. The Grande Cuvée is “by far the most important wine of the house and the prestigious quintessence of the house style”. After bottling, it is kept in the Krug cellars for a further six years, resulting in a Champagne of extreme generosity and elegance. The perfect toast for a special occasion, it can be enjoyed with a wide variety of foods – from an extra mature Parmesan to a dish of turbot à la truffe.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
